    Some security questions

    hi everyone,

    I'm trying to lockdown windows 8 as much as possible for one user. I just want to know the following:-

    1. How can I restrict access to multiple files? for example I want to stop them from running many .chm files, so I don't want to select one file at a time...I want to be able to use a wildcard method.

    2. How can I block folder options, so that users cannot access the menu options/ribben such as "view hidden" or "map network drive" etc.

    3. How can I disable troubleshooting dialog boxes? This can appear by someone right-clicking on a network status icon in the system menu bar.

    Most of this stuff can be accomplished via group policy; e.g., #2:

    Folder Options - Enable or Disable - Vista Forums

    Map Network Drive and Disconnect Network Drive - Add or Remove - Windows 7 Forums (Also works in 7/8)
